James Graham’s play centres around Fleet Street and the offices of The Sun in 1969. A rebellious, young Rupert Murdoch asks The Sun’s Editor the impossible – to give the people what they want. No matter the cost!
Directed by Rupert Goold (King Charles III). Ink will star Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Matilda) and Richard Coyle (The Associate, The Lover) reprising their roles from the Almeida Season.
James Graham said: “It’s been such a creatively rewarding experience, building this show at the Almeida. I’m in absolute awe of our actors and the creative team, led by Rupert. And grateful to the audiences who’ve been coming and supporting the work. After being given the chance to revive This House in the West End earlier this year I think it’s really exciting to see so many new and politically – engaged plays being given the chance to find a wider audience.”
Ink is designed by Bunny Christie, lighting design by Neil Austin, sound and composition by Adam Cork, video by Jon Driscoll, and choreography and movement direction by Lynne Page.
